I'll put it this way: I know intelligent and moral conservatives, and I also despite the way the bulk of the right here on DP acts like they are only (sometimes) responsible for their actions but everyone on the left is responsible for each others' actions. So I don't want to emulate it.

Actual conservatism does seem to have done a nose-dive in the GOP over the last 20-30 years, so they do seem rather outnumbered today.
But the kind of Conservative you're talking about, the fiscally responsible anti-war Constitutionalist, this person is in a very small minority on the Right. They're the exception, while the rule is Fascism.
And it's always been that way. Conservatives opposed every civil rights movement in American history, they even opposed freeing the slaves. This isn't something that just happened with Trump or Reagan.

The right has it's own media sources such as Breitbart, Oann, Newsmax, Stormfront, [...]
One positive first step would be in asking this site to accept the right's media outlets as Mainstream!
Stormfront accepted as MSM?
So you're one of the newer Nazis at DP...got it.

I welcome you to provide your evidence of this, After-Hour Prowler !.
All the things he stated have been in the news, on national television and in the main stream press. Not hard for someone to find if they want to find the truth but i guess you don't have the interest in making sure the crap the democrats are feeding you is true.

They opposed the freeing of slaves?
That is totally false.

The Republican Party was started to free the slaves & the democrats wanted slavery.

Republicans freed the slaves.

Republicans freed the slaves.
During that time, the Republicans were left-leaning and the Democrats were right-leaning. Notice how the slave-owning states vote Republican today.

It doesn’t change the fact, the GOP was started to free the slaves & the democrats were not onboard.

Democrats opposed freeing the slaves & that should never be forgotten.

Cool, but I didn't say anything about Republicans and Democrats. I said that Conservatives were against freeing the slaves. Conservatism has always been about restricting freedom.

Well please don’t ignore the truth.

Democrats favored keeping slavery & the GOP was started to free the slaves.

Republicans freed the slaves !
